Festive Coleslaw

If you are looking for a quick and easy salad for Easter, coleslaw is just the thing!  It comes together fast, and although it has to sit for a couple of hours to allow the flavor to develop, that means it is good for making ahead of time.  The recipe I am sharing with you today does not contain any sugar, oil or mayonnaise like traditional coleslaw, instead I add in pineapple and pineapple juice for sweetness and almond butter for a rich texture.  It may be simple, but it is delicious, and it would be perfect as a lighter healthier side for your Easter meal.
